Our beautiful sweet gram has gone to be with the lord, her husband of 40 years, her daughter, and her grandson on January 2, 2022.
She was born in Oklahoma to Orva and Bertha Marler. She was one of eight children. She married her one true love K.L. Hicks on September 18, 1944. They had their daughter, Kay Lynn. She had two children, Jimmy and Rebecca (Billy), four great grandchildren: Megan, Jimmy, Markie, and Ashlee, and four great-great grandchildren. She was a waitress at Bratten’s for 26 years. She loved gardening, cooking, and traveling with her family. She loved being outdoors!
Gram was kind and generous. She loved her family most of all.
We love you, Gram!

Life Story Info
Aunt Arlene was my mother's sister. (Alice Reed(Marler) She was a very sweet and loving person. I remember being with her at my grandmothers' in Oklahoma. She had brought home canned salmon that Uncle Hicks had caught. I don't remember who all was there but the kitchen was filled and we sat around that afternoon eating salmon and crackers with family sharing stories, laughing until we cried. So much fun! Memories are precious and everlasting. My hope is that they will comfort all who loved her. Love the family, Leellyn Dennis (Reed)
Hello: Arlene was my auntie. She was my mother Nola Marler Casey's sister. My parents stopped often in Salt Lake City to visit or pick up Aunt Arlene on their way to Oklahoma from California. Kay Lynn and I had fun together in Okemah, Oklahoma where I was born. I remember Aunt Arlene as being very beautiful and fun loving. Mom and she would laugh until tears rolled down their cheeks about their childhood memories in Oklahoma. On one occasion around Easter 1975, my husband had business in Salt Lake City, and I tagged along and we visited Aunt Arlene. When my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in November 1983, Aunt Arlene and Uncle Hicks surprised us by coming to their party here in Santa Rosa. That was very much appreciated! Please accept my condolences on behalf of myself and my two sisters Mona and Beverly in the loss of your Grammy. May you be comforted by the happy memories of her and hold them close to your heart. With love, Sharon
